All,

When I use a filter, such as polorizing, I find that is hard to use/turn with the hood on. How most of you all handle this? Do you take the hood off?

Thanks!

This may be contrary to what most others do, but I do leave the hood on if at all possible. The polarizer isn't immune to flare, so I adjust the polarizer first and then put the hood on just prior to shooting. Yes, it takes extra time but I know I'm minimzing any chance of flare on the filter.

Interesting...sounds like a good method.
